This afternoon.

Government Buildings, Dublin 2.

Members of a group representing ‘brides-to-be’ celebrate the relaxation of the guest limit for wedding receptions to 100 guests from August 5.


This morning/afternoon.

Outside the Department of Health, Baggott Street, Dublin 2.

A spontaneous outpouring?

Or something more organised?

We may never know.

Wedding numbers rise to 100 after 5 August (RTÉ)

    This is a complete state-sponsored apartheid against all of the unclaimed treasures, left-on-the-shelf, confirmed bachelor/spinsters of this proud patriot nation!

    Wake up sheeple! It’s beef or salmon for one crowd, and gulags for the other…

    “Members of a group representing ‘brides-to-be’”
    They should run in the next general election. They could call themselves The Hen Party.

    It was never cancelled, we had a nice 12 person wedding over the summer because we’d rather not wait. Love has nothing to do with the size of your entourage.

    All very,”The Handmaids Tale”-a newly resonant dystopia featuring irish brides and a few guests.

      Would have thought you’d be a fan of hand made Johnny, no?

      I’d be rather disappointed if you were a pre rolled kind of guy?

        …dabbing a lot lately,i have ahem access some great weed,also smoking way too much hash, mornings are…a friend grow’s tobacco,so i tear a nice dry leaf off,fill that with about two grams- today its AJ Sour Diesel’s (Joe Murray) head stash-private stock-add some “French’ hash,your basic baller blunt:)

        pre-rolls we have cups filled with them lying around unsmoked-2 dollars each these days thats cost,with about a gram in them but its all trim/stems.

    “We may never know” Especially if you only confine your “news” gathering to conspiracy, antivaxx, and qanon sources who organise unorganised rallies with no organiser’s (sic)

    This has been featured in the media all week by couples who’d booked an August wedding with the expectation of being allowed 100 guests.

        The burden of proof is on you to show that they are NOT brides to be and that they are in fact a bunch of liars in thrall to the government press office.

        Or, you know, just do that thing where you insinuate with zero accountability. I’d choose option B if I was you Bodge!

        I think they might be people who want to sell things to brides to be.. obviously, grooms have nothing to do with any of this

    Just to clarify- weddings are held in licensed premises, the same licensed premises which are supposed to check for vaccination passports- so are wedding guests to be checked too?

    Are unvaccinated to have their invites withdrawn or will they be sitting outside looking in through the window?

    1. Junkface

      Yes, invites thrown away. Guests without correct papers to be brought around the back of the church and executed with maximum prejudice! Rolled into a mass grave, optional.

      Best Man speech? Check

      Bridesmaid flowers? Check
